Et toi, ________ as-tu rencontré?

I had this example. Why "Et toi, qui est-ce qu' as-tu rencontré?" is wrong? Can't we use qui est-ce que here?

Minas, 

Have a look at the linked lessons. Verb inversion is not used in questions using est-ce que, so using it is not an option in this example.

Asking questions in French with "qui/que/quoi/quand/où/comment/pourquoi/combien" (French Question Words)

 Asking yes/no questions in French with intonation, est-ce que, n'est-ce pas (French Questions)

You have to choose between the two options:

(1) Qui est-ce que tu as rencontré? -- using est-ce que...
(2) Qui as-tu renctontré? -- inversion

You can't use them both in one sentence.
